What happens when a Democratic Congressman-turned-Republican-turned-pariah decides to rehabilitate himself? He starts sucking up to the folks who were dumb enough to support him in the first place. That's right campers, Parker Griffith has embarked on a Democratic rehab tour using former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman as his prop.
Former Alabama Congressman Parker Griffith, right, described Siegelman's seven-year sentence as a "political assassination" in a remarkable interview by Lila Garrett on KPFK. Garrett hosts a Los Angeles-based radio show. The interview can be heard nationwide in the second of the show's three segments.
Good luck with that. What's remarkable is that Griffith thinks anyone would believe he has any shred of credibility left. If he told me the sky is blue, I'd have to walk outside & look up before I believed it.
Yes campers! Parker Griffith thinks we're so darn stupid - or so amnesiac - that we'll forget the "Nancy Pelosi needs mental health care" or "both Pelosi and Obama are Socialists" comments. Not to mention the $%$ party switch and refusal to refund Democratic contributions.
You see, Griffith seems to think that Alabama Democrats are so anxious for validation that they'll forget his party switch, his vote against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and his stupidity in abandoning his district by thinking he'd keep his committee assignment after his switch.
This clueless SOB paved the way for Mo "socialists in the Congressional belfry" Brooks to be elected and re-elected.
I don't believe that Parker Griffith has any higher calling than his own self-aggrandizement. I know who my friends and allies are. And Parker Griffith will never, ever make that list.
